Tasty Music Stuff For Fans
Hey, music fan! Yeah, you! Do you eat, sleep and breathe music?
Do you bug out when you're stuck someplace with no tunes? How many minutes of complete silence do you get per day? How many music playback devices do you own?
- Did you answer: "turn it up so I can hear it in the bathroom," "zero," and "do obsolete formats count?" Well... you're not alone.
If you drool at the prospect of hearing that new track by that weird band that nobody else knows about yet... If you honestly believe that your last failed date could have been saved by a different song... If the live music you see is more interesting than the people there...
...then your brain runs on music, so you should check out this stuff...
Silent Way is proud to have worked on over 90 album, track, and video releases, including two Grammy-nominated albums. On this page you can listen to music, explore project notes, album covers, stories and more. Most have free audio or video. These releases are from many more recording projects with over five hundred clients in over a hundred venues since 1993. Check it out.

(As featured in SF Weekly's "ListenUp 2003" music supplement.)
A DIY introduction to resources that help you listen and learn about the latest genres of music. All have audio to complement the text, for useful context. In the end, it's up to your ears, so open them up and don't let anyone tell you what to like.

So, you say there's no good music on the radio? Maybe, unless you know how to avoid commercial radio crap... Most of these Bay Area stations are also streaming on the net.
An idea for a Free library of Music
